Getting Women into STEAM
The lovely and beautiful science boss lady, Cara Santa Maria, joins us at Business Rockstars to show us why being in the STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art, math) world is BADASS. Cara is an Emmy and Knight Foundation Award winning journalist, science communicator, television personality, producer, and podcaster... WOAH, that's a lot of titles.
Cara covers her podcast #TalkNerdy as well as the podcast industry, her job as a a science communicator and what that entails, her science background, journey, and passion. She talks about her decision to dive into media to reach bigger audiences. Her multiple revenue sources.
Cara gives us tips that she does to make her business(es) work. Also, she mentions something she has taken to heart - the 3 Ps that Cara learned from a fellow freelancer - Prestige, Payment, and Passion.
Lastly, Cara and Ken dive into the importance of getting more girls into the STEAM world and what is needed to do so. First off, Cara explains that there needs to be more adult women role models for young women out there (like Cara)! It is not that there are not women in those science and engineering roles, for example, it's just that they are not in front of the camera. More women that are already in the STEAM world just need to be showing their faces!
